Before any applicant is accepted as a member of the Referral List, we conduct a background investigation including these areas …
- Licensing & Insurance – to assure that applicant holds proper licenses, registrations, insurances and/or certifications in germane industries.
- Civil Courts – to assure that applicant has no patterns of civil litigation in connection to fraud, financial instability and/or operational problems.
- Criminal Courts – to assure that applicant has no serious criminal background and/or pending charges that could compromise customers.
- Sex Offender Registry.
- References – in some cases, where appropriate, we check applicant for credit, personal and professional references.
NOTE: All of the background checking available may not uncover each and every risk involved in dealing with businesses so it is incumbent upon people to protect themselves. You will find many tips in Tom’s blog to help avoid fraud.
